ARLINGTON – A workshop presenting the initial ideas for Arlington’s downtown corridor will be at 6 p.m. Feb. 11 in the Haller Middle School Commons, 600 E. First St.

The City of Arlington and Western Washington University Sustainable Communities Partnership Studio Project hosted a workshop in November inviting residents and business owners to envision ways to shape a downtown corridor plan that preserves downtown’s character and charm in the face of anticipated growth.

Planning topics include urbanizing the downtown, housing diversity, transportation solutions, preserving architectural character, parking, and parks and trails.

Participants last November talked about downtown appearance and amenities, connectedness with Centennial Trail and access from nearby neighborhoods, job growth and how to better blend business and residential uses.

City officials said the goal is to revitalize downtown and give visitors more reasons to spend time there.
